Ubuntu: How to install metasploit and armitige


I want to install metasploit and armitage on my ubuntu 16.04 LTS laptop running kernel 4.6

I've read blogs and posts on how to install it but the problem is is that they are outdated. The packages are not there anymore and or the commands dont work.

If anyone can give me an updated tutorial on how to install it that would be great. I also think other users that see this post and want to install it will also be thankful. Thanks.


Here is a blog post (untested but states it works for 16.04): http://www.darkoperator.com/installing-metasploit-in-ubunt/


Install metasploit you can use automated installer:

64 Bit:

wget https://downloads.metasploit.com/data/releases/metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run && wget https://downloads.metasploit.com/data/releases/metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run.sha1 && echo $(cat metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run.sha1)'  'metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run > metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run.sha1 && shasum -c metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run.sha1 && chmod +x ./metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run && sudo ./metasploit-latest-linux-x64-installer.run  

(for 32bit version, same command but remove '-x64' from the filename/url)


This should be ran on a virtual machine, dont ignore ssl errors/hash checksums (both are checked using the above script to ensure files being downloaded are from metasploit.com).

if wget failed makes sure you are using wget-ssl.


You can download the free version of Metasploit directly from their website: http://www.rapid7.com/products/metasploit/editions.jsp

Alternatively, install Katoolin from GitHub. This is a script that lets you install all the tools provided in Kali Linux. It has a very simple and good user guide and there are also many YouTube videos explaining its use.
